    Ladytron put on a damn fine show in at the Metro in Chicago, the Presets opened here too and got a pretty decent response from the crowd as well.

    Cracked out psytrancer since I'm pretty much attending directly from HowWeird Street Faire. . . . .

    The Ladytron show == the shit

  4. The Mighty Ruckus link is actually, fuckstick.

    Not that I'll be there.

      Tell it to Google, tool.

      • First one that came up for me (for sfindie) was, which has the correct info.

        • jwz says:

          The current "Mighty Ruckus" URL occurs nowhere in the first three pages of googling for "Mighty Ruckus", but last year's page is link #3. You're right, though, it would be foolish for the URL that already has the google juice to have, or link to, the current information. I'm so wrong!

          • I don't actually have anything to do with AMR or the URL or its Google-jizzuice; I provided the link in case you wanted the information.

            The "fuckstick" part was just an expression of sheer annoyance at the "Lake Hepatitis" comment.

    Damn.. So awesome. One day I will be in Frisco again..

    Everyone: please stop reminding me that the Sleater Kinney shows are sold out. I am miserable enough already.

    Jesus. Some good gigs there.

    Goldfrapp were great when I saw them recently in Sheffield (UK), although sadly lacking the stage props (wolf's heads etc!).

    That FLA/support bill looks amazing, too. Shame we couldn't get DJ? Acucrack/Acumen Nation over in the UK :( (We finally get FLA/Stromkern for Infest though!)

    Beck's playing at the Fillmore the 25th of May. Just announced today.

    Creepshow Peepshow @ DNA Lounge

    Call me a fool, but I'd *much* rather see Scrape.dx.

    • jwz says:

      Let's see... Option A: live comedy with cute dancing girls; or Option B (and gosh, I'm only guessing here) nerdy chubby guys staring at their laptops (that's what "high performance combat audio system" means, right?) Yeah, tough call, tough call.

      • hafnir says:

        Actually he's pretty skinny. Otherwise that's pretty much his set, but the track's severely kick! Anyway, we don't have to have the usual debate again.

        The headliner's supposed to be a real band, though.

      • kyronfive says:


        He's not chubby.

        And short nerdy guys with laptops totally do it for me way more than goth girls.

  10. merovingian says:

    I'll be at Slim's on Monday, but actually I'm going for the opening band.

  11. wetzel says:

    ahhh, the shittiness of being under 21.
    when I lived in LA it seemed a lot more places were open to all ages shows than up here.

    • chromebishop says:

      MIghty Ruckus today is all ages. Come check it out.

      Also, damn shame the Elm Street thing got moved to June 8, that'll compete directly with my big Benefit/Launch party for Another Hole in the Head.

    how were the sounds? they seem to be the hot new thing with the kids down here.
